JD Integral Hitch

I've got a 2001 GT225. How does the JD integral hitch work? I know it is a manual lift, but does it use a separate lift arm on the back, or does it somehow integrate with the mower deck lift? If it uses the mower deck lift, am I correct to assume that you couldn't use it with the mower deck on?

Thanks very much - that clears it up. I just didn't want something that I had to pull the deck everytime to use. Now I guess I need to decide on a manual unit or one of those electric sleeve hitches (nice, but $$$).
hey nysff heres my advice build one. mayb find a small hydraulic ram or even better an electric linear actuater and build it. its more satisfying
